On May 22nd, approximately 60 Track & Field students from grades 3-7 headed off the Bear Creek Park for the afternoon to practice their skills on the big track and work towards qualifying to represent our school at the June 6th District Track & Field Meet. Students participated in long jump, triple jump, shot put, and a whole variety of running events. Thank you to all of the Cambridge staff members who have volunteered their time to run practices during Track & Field season, and to Ms. Steeves, Ms. Ineson, Ms. Palak and Mr. Fleming for working with students at the mini meet. A special thank you to the numerous parents who also volunteered their time to make the mini meet event run smoothly.
We are heading into our second week of Aboriginal Cultural presentation/workshops with students. Last week, we had an opening ceremony where Mrs. Lourenco and a class of grade 2 students sang a beautiful welcome song in many different languages and then performed a First Nations drumming song. We formally welcomed our Aboriginal guests who are sharing stories and experiences with a variety of classes. Be sure to ask your child about who has visited their classroom and what they learned about Aboriginal Culture.
Bike, Walk or Wheel to School Week (May 29 – June 1) is a free, fun, week-long celebration for students of all ages and abilities at Cambridge Elementary. We encourage all students to use an “active form of transportation” to travel to and from school this coming week. The weather should be great and we have some great bicycle related prizes that will be given away on Friday for students that travel to school “under their own power”.
HUB Cycling, a charitable non-profit organization established in 1998 to improve cycling conditions in Metro Vancouver, has a great resource site on Raising Your Bike IQ. It is worth checking out!
The PAC is hosting a Staff Appreciation lunch on Monday May 28 (pro-d day). If you can help with set up please email at Cambridge.email@example.com
